it. we have details from the family and police. the family tells us dennis dixon was shot in the doorway. his 22-year-old stepson was assaulted and taken to the hospital. you can see paramedics taking the stepson away earlier last night. we are told he lived here with his stepfather and may be released earlier. now you are looking at that video of the. the dills which led up to the shooting are not complete. initially police confirmed this was a home invasion but they may have known each oamplet din miss dixon's mother told us she was told her son pulled up to the apartment before 11:00 last night and exchanged words with one of the suspects which is when the suspects forced themselfs into the apartment and then the shooting happened. dennis dixon's brother told us his daughter woke him up in a panic. >> she just banged on the door and said dad, wake up your brother was murdered. and i ran with my boxers on and i just ran to the door and said 0 lord, no, please don't tell me that. and she said, yes. >> reporter: we nt that police arrived quickly to the scene and arrested t
